Tragedy in Galicia

Yesterday on the Eve of the Feast of St James the Apostle: reports of the terrible train derailment near Santiago de Compostela here and here

We ask the prayers of St James for those killed and injured

O glorious Apostle, St. James, 
who by reason of thy fervent and generous heart 
wast chosen by Jesus to be a witness of His glory on Mount Tabor,
and of His agony in Gethsemane;  thou, whose very name is a symbol 
of warfare and victory: obtain for us strength and consolation
in the unending warfare of this life, that, 
having constantly and generously followed Jesus, 
we may be victors in the strife 
and deserve to receive the victor's crown in heaven.
